Since the image of a lifeguard tower was the source of inspiration materials used inside this Israeli home were kept as natural as possible. A concrete floor and ceiling act as two parallel planes that contain the white stucco walls presenting an image of simplicity and cheerfulness. There is no shortage of natural light here with the large framed windows also ushering in the view on offer! The open living area contains the kitchen and dining and flows onto the deck outside.
Nothing transforms an interior completely like the right lighting. It could be a flood of natural light on some occasions and a carefully planned and executed combination of recessed and pendant lighting on others.
Translucent glass partitions act as separators between the different zones in the lower-level living area with the double-height living space itself captivating you with its sophistication and understated class. Even here it is wooden panels that draw your attention instantly as they shape a stunning feature wall that holds the giant flat screen.
Once you step inside this elegant home the image of the dark stained cedar exterior is quickly replaced by a breezy living space clad in neutral hues and an open living area that is filled with ample natural light.
Rough-sawn ore pine and lovely timber beams give the interior cozy warmth even as the concrete fireplace and bathroom offer cool textural contrast. With an audacious design and an even more awesome backdrop this is indeed a dream getaway in every sense of the word!
Promising a lifestyle that takes you back into the lap of nature even while delivering modern comfort and aesthetics the designed by ARCHITECTUREFIRM combines two contrasting worlds in a relaxing and ravishing fashion.
The main objective of the residence was to create a nurturing and caring environment for three young boys and to open up a world of amazing natural sights and sounds that leave them enthralled. Nestled on the river’s edge and surrounded by beautiful woods the three minimal structures of the house were placed to create private and cozy outdoor hangouts that are sheltered from the elements.
